D’HERVE, Federico E; MARINODE REMES LENICOV, Ana María  and  AQUINO, Daniel A. Neodelphax fuscoterminata (Hemiptera: Fulgoroidea: Delphacidae) y su enemigo natural Anagrus incarnatosimilis (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae), primer registro sobre frutos de manzano. Rev. Mus. Argent. Cienc. Nat. [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.1, pp.85-90. ISSN 1853-0400.

Neodelphax fuscoterminata (Berg) is documented for the first time as a species associated with apple cultivation, describing fruit damage. The distribution of this species is extended southwards to the province of Río Negro, Argentina. Its most outstanding anatomical features are presented and the adults of both sexes and wing morphs are illustrated, in order to facilitate their recognition by fruit growers and agricultural technicians. The natural enemy Anagrus incarnatosimilis Soyka, which behaves as an oophagous parasitoid of N. fuscoterminata, is recorded for the first time in the New World.
